The Ambassadors Victorian Blog Hop ...

Hi Everybody,

 Ambassadors Victorian Blog Hop
Welcome to the first ever very informal blog hop for the International Ambassadors

We all got chatting online and decided to have this blog hop just for fun ...  to introduce each one of us to you and promote ourselves as your Ambassadors 

 This is  our way for you  to get to know each of us and for you to see what we can do and we hope to inspire you along the way

Being asked to join the  team has been a great honour and one I was more than delighted to accept. The role means that we get to promote some wonderful products that are coming your way in the future.

We are all individuals with our own particular style and we range from as far afield as Australia with Linda ... Netherlands with Yvonne  and Germany with Ursula.   Christine Emberson and I are at opposite ends of  the UK

My particular remit is to be the face you see on Create and Craft and to inspire you by showing you what you can do with the beautiful dies that you can buy. 

So if you came here from  Christines' Blog  then you are in the right place and please feel free to leave all of  us a comment and bookmark them too so you can visit regularly

We have chosen as our theme the   Victorian Collection  .. and it was no secret when I brought these to you via C&C that they are amongst my favorite dies.
 I fell in love with these from the word "Go"  and they are dies that I never put away.

Each one of the Ambassadors has created something in their own personal style and here is my card for you to see....


I have used the  Victorian Medallions Three   for my card and layered it in blue and white.  I have incorporated all the things that I like to use to create my style of card

Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts ... Ribbons ... and Pearls from Want2Scrap 

If you should get lost on the hop then the International Ambassadors Team consists of 
Christina  ... You are here
         Linda  ... Your next stop 


And before I go here are some more pictures of other cards that I have made  using the same
Victorian Medallions Three

These  were featured on Create and Craft TV.

Thank you so much for stopping by and we hope you  enjoy your time with us. and meeting the International Ambassadors Team.

We will be back with  more to share in the future and you can count on that.

This post will stay at the top for the weekend  but scroll down  if you are looking for the Friday Freebie Card Winner

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Hi Christina, these cards are beautiful, and it is a great idea to do the blog hop. I think that die will be my next purchase as it looks so versatile, and the cards are stunning.
    Do we need to leave a comment when we visit your colleagues.
    Kind regards

  10. Good morning Christina, well what a lovely suprise, to have a private showing of dies that will be coming to us very soon. Presented to us by some of the best crafters in their field. So I am saying thank you now before I start.
    I remember this die on C&C, and I agree it is a beautiful die and quite honestly makes the card on its own, however it would not be a Christina Griffiths card without all the adornments. Off to the next on the list, bye for now. X Ros

  20. I am so happy to see this hop Christina, I saw the Victorian collection first with you on C and C and couldn't wait to get them! I haven't had too much time to play with them yet, with the holidays and all, but now I can see lots of time being dedicated to them with all the inspiration I see here on the hop. Thanks so much for your lovely cards day after day.

  21. Good morning Christina,
    I honestly couldn't pick which card i like the most as each one is so pretty in it's own way. But the top Christina" card is probably my favourite because like you i am not very good at the less is more game, i love cards that have all the wee extras to finish it off and the first card you show is a typical Christina card, one that anyone could tell a mile away that you made it, it is stunning, thank you. Have fun in your new role.
    Love and crafty hugs

  22. Your card looks just beautiful and i love all the blues together the way that you used them and layered them. Thank you for doing the hop to share what you do with all of us! Big Hugs...Teresa

  23. Christina, hi! Well, I've been sitting here with my cup of Chai, and visiting with your new friends! They do really good work, just like you! I think I especially fell in love with Linda's cards! Loved the clean, classic look of Christine's card, too. And, of course, Yvonne's style hit really close to home! Love it! I was a little intimidated on Ursula's page not knowing which card she'd made for the Blog Hop, but what I saw of her work was very nice. I saw a photo of all of you in, I'm assuming, Phoenix. I think you posted it as well! Very nice. What a nice idea this was. I think I'm now following most of these ladies. Thank you!
